Layers in Editor 306 and Viewer212

Post by Peter2 » Thu Nov 28, 2013 7:54 am

I open a file with layers in both software applications

a) In Editor I can not display the "Layer" list. The command in "View - Other bars - ... (Ctrl+L)" is greyed out. (Retranslated from German, maybe not the exact wording). Pressing "Ctrl+L" makes Ding-Dong, that's all.

EDIT: I just saw that the feature is not enabled yet ... ... hp?t=19885

b) In Viewer it is OK, but I'm wondering about the icons beside the layer name. The "Light bulb" is clear for me, but the "Puzzle" means what?? There is also no tooltip and no info in the manual.

Hi Peter,

The puzzle piece is just the general icon we've selected to indicate a layer.
There are icons for bookmarks in the bookmark pane (even if they don't have sub entries), and for the different shapes in the comments pane - that's why there's an icon (being it a puzzle piece) for layers as well - to keep it consistent with the other similar panes.
